The move toward net zero has seen organizations and multinational companies around the world seek out intelligent solutions for achieving their renewable energy targets. With large investments in renewables, power purchase agreements, and Energy Attribute Certificates (EACs), these organizations have much to lose if they do not get it right. So how does an organization or company know if it is indeed on the right track?

The way in which energy is traded—as Renewable Energy Certificates or Guarantees of Origin (GOs)—has until now been largely uncontested. But in considering a new kind of certificate—time -based EACs—the veracity of the data in previous EACs is coming into question. Time-based EACs provide a much more granular view of the time and place energy is generated—providing a tool by which organizations can match their energy needs much more elegantly. In doing so, these organizations have a way to achieve 24/7 Carbon-Free Energy (CFE).

Join this panel discussion, in which panelists from Powerledger, Google, and EnergyTag will explore the emerging trend of 24/7 CFE and how granular energy credits can provide sustainability managers a path forward for achieving their renewable energy targets. The panel will share insights and research from around the world in the hope of bringing the industry together to achieve a common goal.
